Our Team is a tribute to the resilient spirit of our cherished Robert Martinez, who we lost to cancer in 2020.
His laughter and courage are imprinted on our hearts, and in his honor, we’re uniting to wage a spirited campaign against this formidable adversary.
The UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge is a tapestry of hope, binding together kindred spirits in pursuit of a cancer-free world. We would be deeply honored if you would join this crusade with us, either through a gracious donation or by taking part in the 5K event on October 7, 2023, at the UCI Campus.
Please consider making a donation, no matter how big or small, to support cancer-related pilot studies and early phase clinical trials that aim to develop new insights into cancer prevention, treatment and cures — to save lives!
Every dollar donated to any team member is counted toward our overall team goal, and more importantly, 100% of your contribution directly supports critical cancer research.
The UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge is an activity of the University of California, Irvine Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax ID 95-2540117.
